Galicica is a mountain situated across the border between North Macedonia and Albania. There is a national park on the Macedonian side of the mountain, situated between the two largest lakes in the republic: Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa. It stretches over an area of 227 square kilometers. Beautiful views across the lakes and neighboring mountains can be seen from the Galicica peaks. The highest peak is Magaro – 2,255 m. ‘The mountain, which is far away from the city lights, has a great sunset view of Lake Ohrid and when the night comes, you have a great view of the night sky!’
